    Harvard Graphics DOS (2003)

    I have a lot of old DOS based Harvard Graphics Text Charts that are White Text on a Black Background. I no longer have the Harvard Graphics program. I have been able to convert the files to .jpg format so that I can import them as picture files into Word. The charts are readable that way, but printing white text on a black background is not at all practical. Is there any way within Word to swap the black and white colors in the graphic so that I now have black on white? I do have Adobe Elements 2.0 but can't seem to do what I want to do with that program.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    There were some changes, but in Elements 3, this works:
    1. <LI>Open image
      <LI>Add a gradient map (Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Gradient Map)
    Accept the defaults (normal blend mode, 100% opacity) and the white-to-black gradient (the first one in the Default set).

    Does it work for you?

    Since you already have your files in JPG format, I'd recommend the batch conversion capabilities of Irfanview.
